The sun has got his hat on…

The sun has been out this weekend, and so have we, we may, therefore be slightly behind schedule. Oh well! We went on a drive into the countryside to see what we might find, and this is what we found…

20140518-115853-43133021.jpg This little Victorian cupboard, he needs a bit of a make-over but will be useful.

20140518-120247-43367258.jpg These potential kitchen floor tiles, not the anticipated slate, but they have scope, samples ordered so we’ll review when they arrive.

20140518-121117-43877358.jpg This plate, which I later realised I was drawn to as my Grandma had a matching jardiniere and this dinky kitchen weight, which I have no use for what so ever. We also had the nice man from the local wood reclamation shop come round to price up renovating our front door and fireplaces, we’ll be booking him in shortly.

20140518-122448-44688845.jpg Guys have also been round to quote on rebuilding the chimneys, I’m adamant that the front one should be rebuilt as it currently is, complete with brick patterns.

20140518-122447-44687893.jpg The back one (which makes me feel a little sick whenever I look at it) is easier. We had planned to leave these until we do the roof and loft conversion to save on scaffolding costs, but doing the chimneys now means we can drop liners down and take the library and lounge fireplaces to conclusion which will be super. Finally I’ve had a profitable week selling some old furniture on Ebay, creating some space and adding to my dining table fund! As much as we’d love to spend the rest of the afternoon lazing in the sun, we need to get hallway prepped for plasterers to quote. No rest for the renovater!

  1. Love the little cabinet — please don’t paint it. I’m sure the chimney building will try your patience, hang in there. Jo @ Let’s Face the Music
